A publication early December on the UK government’s website, by its Department for Education, announced the application for interested non-UK nationals.

The notice read, From February 1, 2023, teachers who qualified in the following nine countries listed will also be able to apply to the QTR through the TRA. andTeachers from all eligible countries will have to show they meet a consistent set of criteria for the award of the QTS. Over time, this route will be opened to qualified teachers from every country outside the United Kingdom.

“To apply for assessment – only QTS, you do not need a formal teacher training qualification” the notice reads.

The required qualifications is a minimum of two years teaching experience, a first (bachelor’s) degree from a UK or non-UK university, an English language qualification which is the same standard as a grade four General Certificate of Secondary Education, a maths qualification which is the same standard as a grade four GCSE to teach children aged three to 11 in primary school, a physics, chemistry or biology (science) qualification which is the same standard as a grade four GCSE.
